The .270 Winchester pictured here began life as a large-ring DWM Mauser. I ground it to small ring and machined the left side to emulate the G 33-40 action. In addition metal was removed under the wood line to effect weight reduction. The barrel is a 22" Douglas turned to lightweight contour. The low-scope bolt handle is checkered with four panels. The bolt stop is also checkered. The action now has a 2-position side swing safety and adjustable trigger. The Leupold M8 6x42 scope is mounted in S&K rings and bases. The 1909 Argentine trigger guard is streamlined and the guard bow release lever checkered. The grip cap is a steel Dressel model. All metal is slow rust blued.
The stock is California English of fairly straight grain but ideal structural layout. The barreled action is pillar bedded and the guard screws are hex head so the barreled action can be easily removed and replaced with minimal disturbance to the accuracy. The checkering is 24 line-per-inch in a fleur-de-lis pattern which wraps around the forend with tapered ribbons in the wrist. The finish is Permalyn tung oil applied in multiple hand-rubbed coats. The sling swivel bases are the two-screw inletted variety. The length of pull is 14 1/4" to a Pachmayer rubber butt plate. Drop at the comb nose is 5/8" below the bore line and the heel is 3/4" below. The total scoped weight is 7# 14 oz.
All in all this is a ready-for-the-field, lightweight sporter for 2/3 the cost of a commissioned custom rifle.
